COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American Wheat Beer brewed with red wheat and boat loads of amarillo hops gives this summer brew a lemony finish. The slight haze in the bottle is from the bottle-conditioning, where yeast is added to the bottle for a secondary fermentation. Gumballhead is a Skingraft Comics hero. Check out Skingraft Comics and Records at www.skingraftrecords.com. Cheers!

The gang at 3F have shown how best to deal with the American Wheat style, and thats to turn it into an IPA! LOL. Seriously, theyve shown you can make a wheat beer with character. Pale gold, lightly fizzy head. Lively aroma of resiny floral hops. Mild citrus component to the hops, a bread dough character lays in the background. Surprisingly full malt backbone for a wheat beer, roundly sweet, the bright floral hops also contribute to an impression of sweetness. A little pepper to the hops as they linger all over the palate. Smooth, very easy drinking. Medium bitter finish, clean. Lots of hops. I like amarillo!

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2015 Original, 10/31/2004.<\i> Light amber color with little head. Spicy wheat aroma. Fairly sour taste along with the expected wheat. Much drier than I would think for this beer. It didnt really impress me; different is not always better. 6/3/6/3/14

Wow, what an insightful rating a decade ago... Brilliant gold color with a quickly falling head. Dusty wheat aroma with some orange and tangerine. Very dry lemon, hay, and light spice flavor. A bit like Pledge, but not overwhelmingly so. Far better than my sad rating a decade ago.

Didnt really have a whole lot of wheat beer qualities, it tasted great & was very enjoyable, but wasnt really brewed to the style, copper color, small white head, a bit of lacing, slight bubble gum in the nose, very rich & smooth, some hints of bread & yeast in the flavors along with some clove or other spice, malty finish

When I first had this beer I believe it was server too cold or I simply had a bad bottle. The point is, I liked it much better the second time around. Poured hazy yellow with a tint of green. Great musty lemon and lite pine hop aroma. The taste was difficult for me to describe but Id say there was some lemon flavor along with mild sweetness (cookie dough or candy of some type) but very unlike any wheat beer Ive had. I enjoyed it very much.

Rich gold color w/little or no head. Hop, pine, peach w/syrup aromas. Light weight, fragrant finish that is quite short. Banana, pine, peach and melon all dance in the mouth. Wow!!

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2004 Pours a darker goldenrod color. Aroma of tropical/passion fruit (Papaya)! Flavor is spicy and hoppy, somewhat thin. Still getting fruit juice aromas and tastes. For the style, the most flavorful beer Ive had. Refreshing and a great beer! Thanks to Psych Prof for this one!

golden, lacey white head. aroma of grapefruit, perfume, floral, citrus and lemon hard candy. wjeaty malt flavour, not as hoppy as the nose would suggest. clean lemony and wheaty flavourlight body, soft hoppy finish. a great wheat, but Id like some gumball flavours if theyre going to call it gumballhead.

Bright orange/clear coloured body with a thin, fast-dying white head. Aroma of pure american/citrus hops with little else-very pungent though! Light-bodied; Mild wheat/coriander seed flavours with citrus & hop freshness. Very light flavoured though-a bit dissapointing! Aftertaste bland and somewhat hoppy, not too powerful. Overall, a decent summer wheat, but I was expecting more from this, though! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased at Whole Foods in Vienna, Virginia on 31-July-2004 on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.
